Return list from another class (newbeginner)

Return list from another class (newbeginner)

Return list from another class (newbeginner)

Hello People,

I am total new to C#
I haven't understood how everything is connected to each other classes and objects etc...

I have created a a simple project.
My goal it is to have two different public classes.

the first public class "myList" contains a list called "CompanyInformation" and the list contains the item "test1".

my second public class "CompanyMain" contains the list from myfirstclass "CompanyInformation"

Now I want then from the static void main

alert the item "test1" but from the second class (CompanyMain)

could someone help me?

see my code below:

CODE --> C#

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;

namespace MyProgram
class Program
    static void Main(string[] args)
            //myList ttc = new myList();
            CompanyMain CompMa = new CompanyMain();
            foreach (var c in CompMa.Company)


    public class myList
         List<string> CompanyInfo()
            List<string> CompanyInformation = new List<string>();
            return CompanyInformation;

    public class CompanyMain

        public myList Company = new myList();

I get this error:

foreach statement cannot operate on variables of type 'Program.myList' because 'Program.myList' does not contain a public definition for 'GetEnumerator'

Could someone help me?

Thank you in advance

RE: Return list from another class (newbeginner)


CompanyMain CompMa = new CompanyMain();
            foreach (var c in CompMa.Company.CompanyInfo())
